    Jonny Cole

    Head of Fundraising

    Jonny came to Cavendish Cancer Care to help out for a month in 2006 after getting involved with us through a corporate partner and never left. After meeting so many people that Cavendish Care has made a significant difference to he feels passionately about the care we provide. He is married to Jenny and is father to Jack and in his (limited) spare time enjoys playing and coaching for Rotherham Hockey Club.

    Talk to Jonny about…
    – Taking on a challenge to fundraise for Cavendish (e.g. joining Team Cav for the Sheffield Half Marathon or 10k)
    – Running your own fundraising event or taking part in one of ours
    – or any way you want to get involved in supporting Cavendish Cancer Care


    Mike Sawkins

    Head of Grants & Evaluation

    Mike first joined Cavendish Cancer Care in 2015 after several years spent carrying out biomedical research in the UK and Ireland. What he enjoys most about working here is being able to see on a daily basis the difference that our support makes to local families as a reminder of why he wanted to make that change. He briefly left us at the end of 2016 but rejoined the team in February 2018 and quickly felt as if he’d never been away! He focuses on securing funding from trusts and foundations as well as working to understand and demonstrate the impact of our work. At home Mike loves to cook and is especially happy when baking bread and sweet treats for himself and his family.

    – Abseiling!


    Kirsty White

    Strategic Partnerships Manager

    Kirsty’s background is within corporate events from organising team building events and large scale conferences to family fun days and parties; which all help businesses achieve maximum employee engagement. Joining the team in 2019, she wanted to showcase Cavendish in the vibrant corporate world of South Yorkshire and develop relationships with companies across the city. Working closely with these companies, she helps to develop their CSR strategy and impact on the local community living with cancer, and what better way than through a fun and engaging fundraising event for all of your employees? She loves to hear about what you’ve been up to and the direct impact your company has made on the lives of the patient, families, carers and young people of the region. Kirsty enjoys going back home to Oxfordshire from time to time and spending time outdoors in her garden, Rother Valley or the Peak District.

    Clare Sherratt

    Trusts & Grants Fundraiser

    Clare joined Cavendish in August 2017 to support trust and grant fundraising, as well as some other specific projects such as compiling the Annual Report and helping to plan the Celebration Ball, which took place in March 2019.

    Since graduating from Leeds University with a degree in Media and Management, Clare has worked with a number of South Yorkshire charities for over ten years, developing skills and experience in events and communications, as well as trusts and grants.  She has managed and supported a wide range of events including everything from balls to conferences to sponsored horse rides.  When she’s not working Clare is a keen crafter attempting to make presents for her friends from quilts to baby mobiles and is never happier (read: frustrated from getting stabbed by pins!) than when she has a project on the go.


    Hayley Reynolds


    Hayley joined the fundraising team in 2021 after finishing her Master’s Degree in Sports Science. After 6 years of leading fundraising projects with young people, Hayley decided to follow the fundraising profession full time and was inspired by Cavendish’s work. What Hayley most enjoys about working at Cavendish is seeing the positive impact that her role has on providing essential services for individuals and families living with cancer.

    In her spare time Hayley enjoys entertaining family and friends at home, especially with a BBQ outside, or watching a good film in the evenings. She enjoys staying active by playing ice hockey and is a regular at her local gym.

    Hannah Williams


    Hannah joined Cavendish in 2021 after graduating from Sheffield Hallam with a degree in Events Management with Experiential Marketing. Hannah began working on events in the charity sector during her time at University and, following a cancer diagnosis, knew that this was the sector she wanted to go in to post degree.

    During her chemotherapy (which was successful!), Hannah was introduced to Cavendish and the work that they do and now prides herself on the fact that she is able to help continue the support for others in similar situations.

    In her spare time, Hannah can be found either at a gig, immersed in an interior design project or enjoying some good food at the pub with her family and dog, Ralph.
